Who Earned £'s For Euro 2016

Who Earned £'s For Euro 2016

Last summer's European Championships in France is certainly a money spinner for some - but how did clubs themselves fare when it came to players on duty?

Five Premier League clubs bolstered their coffers financially from sending players to Euro 2016 and only Italian Champions Juventus took more cash on that basis than Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Arsenal and Southampton also featured in the top ten seeing revenue - for the Championship only Barnsley, Bristol City and Huddersfield Town didn't see a payment from UEFA, with Reading receiving just over £1million which was the highest payment in the second tier.

In total 641 European clubs from 54 associations shared in a prize pot of 150m Euros - £127.74million - and Liverpool were the top earners in the top flight with £2.89million paid.

The top ten completes itself with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Roma featuring.

At the other end of the football pyramid, Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One North (mouthful!) side Farsley Celtic earned themselves a payment owing to Gibraltar's inclusion and Welsh Premier League Bala Town also took a share on the same basis.

The payments are owing to an agreement between UEFA and the European Club Association (ECA) that some revenue from the tournament is shared back to clubs as a thank you for releasing their players - but as we all know it's not like they have much of a choice.

Clubs with players at the final tournament shared a pot of £85.6million with an additional £42.58million set aside for those competing in the qualifying stages. An additional £634,390 was carried over from Euro 2012 and divvied up for the qualification phase.

ECA Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the BBC.

'It is important and fair to recognise and reward the clubs for the release of their players.'

The sums are dividing up at the qualifying stage on a fixed amount per player per match basis, and for the final tournament clubs receive a fixed fee per player per day - beginning 14 days prior to the first game and finished the day after their last match.

For Scotland, Aberdeen saw the biggest return with £412,639 paid.

Full payments alphabetically and by Association registration.
